+Ben Mok It's a 30sec exposure at f/9 with my 10.5mm Nikon lens. The fisheye exaggerates the lines, and I'm crouched fairly close (closer than it may seem) to +Michael N Sutton, who was basically making a curtain of sparks around us.
Bad ass!! Sorry i think I'm the only one who actually conveys their thoughts on here....who needs decency as long as your straight forward.....anyway its a cool pic but i wish i knew the camera technique....makes gorgeous pictures.
We used to do something similar with the Siloam light sticks and long string. We would tie them off at different lengths and colors. then in a big dark field at night, we would poke holes in them and swing them around. Kind of like the picture above.
I did that in So Philly back in the 60's with a coat hanger and a steel wool pad. We did it vertically on a narrow street between two three story windowless buildings. The sparks bounced off the walls adding another dimension to the shower. As for burned hair and the sock that caught the bent hanger depositing burning steel into the skin on the ankle, nothing better.
I was a War Baby in Australia (1944). Rascal of a father from Chicago, Ill. There were many Australians who were my tormentors...I didn't find the epithet "Yank"s Leftover" pleasant at all. Then there was British Supremacy ...not having an English last name was a handicap in life. Things have changed over the decades and British Supremacy has to be covert these days as Australia has become diverse since the end of The White Australia Policy in the early 1960's.
Well I would say he’s got a fire on the end of something like rope & as he spins it around the camera is on its lowest speed with other persific settings to let in more light bit like my Night Shooter album photos
